Kill me……

I wrote this a while ago but never shared it on the blog. Maybe I needed something to take my mind of it……. which is why I am not blogging regularly at the moment and have been focusing on work the last 6 months, and ignoring much of the discussions these days.

What you think? Is it just a jaded me or is a lot of the news and posts in seo a bit familiar week to week, month to month? Maybe I just read too much of it…. maybe I don’t read enough!

Anyways…. I got a lot more work done recently ignoring most of it.

PS – I will be updating the site shortly, and updating the free Hobo pdf for subscribers next month:
